About Narcotics Anonymous

“N.A. is a nonprofit Fellowship or society of men and women for whom drugs had
become a major problem. We are recovering addicts who meet regularly to help
each other stay clean. This is a program of complete abstinence from all drugs.
There is only one requirement for membership, the desire to stop using. We
suggest that you keep an open mind and give yourself a break. Our program is a
set of principles written so simply that we can follow them in our daily lives.
The most important thing about them is that they work. There are no strings
attached to N.A. We are not affiliated with any other organizations, we have no
initiation fees or dues, no pledges to sign, no promises to make to anyone. We
are not connected with any political, religious or law enforcement groups, and
are under no surveillance at any time. Anyone may join us, regardless of age,
race, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack of religion. We are not
interested in what or how much you used or who your connections were, what you
have done in the past, how much or how little you have, but only in what you
want to do about your problem and how we can help. The newcomer is the most
important person at any meeting, because we can only keep what we have by giving
it away. We have learned from our group experience that those who keep coming to
our meetings regularly stay clean.” – Basic Text of Narcotics Anonymous
